visually pleasing. quite a bit of wood. separated in to different levels which looks kinda cool. service was a little rough but her english sucked as much as our french, so it was as good as it could have been. A very nice place for a pint, although it was really smokey.
My wife always describes this place as the posh brewpub. It specialises in traditional beer, using as standard a recipe as posible to make perfect dead on examples of the styles. 2 hand pumps, plus even though they normaly sell 7-8 beers a a time, I think I counted 12 other standard taps plus one nytro, alowing for some crossover times where there are ALOT of beers to try. Beers are on seasonal rotation with very few new creations being seen here, To the point of laminated beer menus. Very cosy, very clean and sitting room only, wood stools, tables, chairs and wall tables fit to gether like a puzzle to make for a very clasy looking beer hole. spectacular beer, proper glassware, and fair prices make this a great stop. Food is spectacular, I always think fondly of the aged cheadar quesadias, stuffed with a tasty blend of cheese beans and spice, instead of the normal just mossarella you find most places in this city. Very little english to be found in this place, but the stalf tries there hardest to comunicate to make anglo’s and torists feel welcom. Never any suprises here, just, a nice chair, traditional european food, and simple authentic beer that is completly concistant from year to year. Check the website for a full list of beers, along with poetic discriptions of most. Cheers
A great happy hour $3 a pint and lots of people here in the middle of the afternoon. A good size, with private tables and NOT SMOKEY. COnvenient to downtown. Clean, only the one lady serving, but people around and approachable. Ten taps plus 2 pumps, no guest taps. Good, high quality brews, and a very detailed beer menu. A must stop. DOn’t expect to use much English tp meet people, but I suppose its possible. Five ounce samples were $2 and you have to tip well in Montreal or get dirty looks. I tip..
Set a little back from the sidewalk, I actually passed by once on my walking trips of Montreal without noticing the place. But once You get inside, You have a cozy dimly lit two story brewpub. The lineup when we visisted at RBSG was 8 beers, which is good for a brewpub. The staff was very friendly, all questions answered and requests answered - I’d definately come back if I was close to Montreal. And the food was good.
Établissement visité le 2 novembre 2005 vers 14h. Ambiance: J’adore cette endroit pour son ambiance relaxe et ses murs de briques. Service: Le service est excellent et les serveurs connaissent bien leurs produits, de plus leur menu de bière est très explicatif. Seul déception on ne nous offre pas les bières qui sont absente du menu papier mais qui sont quand même disponible pour consommation. Sélection: Si vous voulez des bières fidèles à leur style et sans défaut vous êtes au bon endroit, il n’y a pas de brassin qui sorte des sentiers battus. Il y a habituellement environ 8 bières au menu. Nourriture: Court menu, on y trouve assiettes de tapas, des burgers et une crème brulée à la stout. (9e rating d’établissement)
Visted twice during the epic journey to Montreal during the RBSG. Very inconspicuous place on St-Denis but inside is nice and clean with lots of seating and open-aired space. 4 levels to drink with 2 bars to choose from. Tasty food, excellent service and moderate prices. The beers are hit or miss but overall one of the top places in Montreal to visit.
RBSG05 - this joint set us up with a thoughtful multi course meal and the beers and glassware were above average. Service was fine and accomadating; building was interesting and in a slick and trendy neighborhood. I really liked the helles. Wish I had time to re-visit.
7 beers on tap plus one on the hand pump, so a decent brewpub selection. This is a great place to hang out for few hours. Food was very good, and beer, while nothing was outstanding, was consistently better than the average. Very nice place.
I usually come here for the Beer, and stay for the food. Both are excellent, but are acquired tastes. I’ve rarely been to a place who rivals with l’Amere for lagers. Their cask pale ale is tasty as well, and the waitstaff always warn you that it’s served a little warmer and that it’s a little flatter than most are used to, and that makes me smile every time.
After DDC, this is the brewpub I frequent the most often. They only do 2-3 seasonals that come back every year and 4-6 regulars they have year-round.
Was here for the RBSG05 Gathering. Nice spacious fist level with nice wooden tables and chairs and a nice bar top. They had 7-8 beers on tap that were decent. Service was good and the waitresses were nice. Upstairs, we had more beer and food. Smaller bar upstaris with more tables and chairs. Bathrooms are nice and clean. The food was very interesting. The bread and cheeses were very nice and the salmon burger was pretty good. A nice place.
